    Great game…the characters are wonderful, and the interactions between the characters are especially interesting.

    There are some forceful role-players in this game, and I fear that they can overpower other players in the party at times. There have been multiple times where another player has tried speaking, but are talked over by the more forceful players in game. I definitely would like to see Decker dial it back a bit and let someone else take the spotlight a bit. It’s great to be a strong player with a well-developed character, but I think giving other players the opportunity to shine would allow them to further develop their characters resulting in a stronger game overall.

    Truly enjoying all the content on the site, Eric. You guys always seem to be having great fun! If a slot ever opens up, I would love to join in!!!

      Thanks for the feedback, Johnathan! It’s always a bit of a balancing act. When we started this group, Justin (Deckard) and Mike (The Doc) were old friends of mine, while James (The Governor) and Jordan (Nathan) were listeners who asked to join in. It was our first stab at playing online, and we fell in love with our little group pretty quickly. It does make issues like talking over each other more of an issue, however.

      Justin is, admittedly, a force of nature when it comes to roleplaying, which was honestly one of the big reasons I brought him on board. I wanted strong roleplaying and characterization to set an example and help draw people in. Deckard is quite a handful, however. And much like any group, it took a while to get the chemistry right. If you like the dynamic but want to hear a little more balanced delivery – I think – you might check out the Obsidian Crown series.

      And thanks for listening, sir!

    I’m all caught up on all the campaigns, but Zeitgeist! I think I’m on 5 or 6 atm!

    Obsidian Crown is soo awesome!!! Post more soon.

    I love Project Z, too…it’s soo hard to choose a favorite! Still awaiting a bit more of the Star Wars campaign even…

    I was being a bit nit-picky, because in sessions after my comment (and the Obsidian Crown) you do a great job as a DM sharing the spot light between the characters, which is hard to do! Appreciate all the content! It’s great to hear a group playing the game as I would…Roleplay driving the game.

    I know how it is to operate in vaccum, so as an artist (dareIsay) I always appreciate constructive criticism, so I hope the feeling is reciprocated. I hope my comments weren’t taken to harshly. I can feel the chemistry in the games, and I definitely love the dynamic each Player Character brings to the game. It is a great group!

    Keep up the great work, guys! You’re all doing a wonderful job and have provided hours of enjoyment for me! I’m chomping at the bit to hear more! I wish I had more to offer than my thanks!
